Sanding approaches

We have begun to increase the amount of sand applied to the green approaches. A disc spreader is used to apply the material which will help the green approaches become firmer and with a more predictable and consistent bounce. Some of the smaller approaches have the material applied by hand. Occasionally we need to keep the sand on the surface for a short time to allow it to fully dry before it can be worked into the surface properly.

Long-eared owl

We managed to get a couple of great pictures of what we think is a long-eared owl recently. It was perched on the perimeter fence in the land to the left of the 7th green. The pictures were taken in the middle of the day.
